Hey Guys/Girls, I just went to my local Performance Exhaust Mechanic and I am getting a new stainless steel performance muffler and a 3 inch tip put on my 1987 xf falcon... will it be loud or just a nice growl?? Thanks much appreciated

Well the tip won't make a difference - apart from cosmetically, and the muffler depends on what it is, you'd be best asking the muffler man.

Also are you just going a stainless muffler on the massive 2" stock potentially rusted out anvil(no I don't mean mandrel) bent exhaust?

mate, it will sound like a 6 with a louder muffler - the only people who think its a V8 will be people who haven't heard many v8s - just keep it legal and without too much drone (i.e. don't be tempted to go too small on the muffler - talk AND LISTEN to what the muffler guy says and emphasise that you want to keep it legal!! Your eardrums will thank you and you won't get defects...
